To The Eagle:
The town’s pool is now open for the season, and once again funds have been donated to support the mission of teaching children to swim. I would like to thank the Cathlamet Woman’s Club for donating $200 for swim lesson scholarships, Wahkiakum County’s EMS Council for donating $1,000 for scholarships, and the Wahkiakum Community Foundation for donating $2,400 to support programs for children.
Teaching children to swim and be safe around water is a key public safety issue. These donations – along with Wahkiakum County’s generous support of the pool -- make it possible for every child to learn how to swim. Go to www.townofcathlamet.com for a full pool schedule. For scholarship information, please inquire at the pool.
